Magnum Opus 2.0 China release postponed to August

Director Shankar’s 2.0 starring Superstar Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar is India’s costliest film ever produced. The film, bankrolled by Lyca Productions, is made on a massive budget of Rs 550 crore.

2.0 was meant to have a grand release in China on July 12. The producers have teamed with HY Media to release the movie in 56,000 screens which includes 47,000 3D screens.

But then, in accordance with a story on a popular website, the film’s release in China have been held up. It is actually asserted that HY Media, who have got the film’s distribution rights in China, is not all in favor of releasing the film as they’re not self reliant about the business of the sci-fi flick in the country.

A source aforesaid the website, “2.0 will be distributed in China by HY Media, who also released Pad Man (Akshay Kumar-starrer). It was an below-average at the Chinese box office and HY Media faced loss of money with this film. 2.0 on the other hand have to earn $25 million (Rs.170 cr approx.) in the neighbouring country and only after that can change into a profitable business for the distributors. But they are uncertain about its business, they don’t yearn to take a risk.”

A little while back, Akshay Kumar and AR Rahman took to Twitter to unveil that 2 .0 will release in China on July 12. “If it had released on July 12, 2.0 would have clashed with The Lion King. It releases a week before its worldwide release and just like everywhere else, even in China, the buzz for this film is at an all-time high. 2.0, meanwhile, is an unknown film and it’ll get low business by ‘The Lion King’ release,” the source aforesaid the website.

By now, it truly is not clear whether or not 2.0 would release in China, in the future. An official confirmation from HY Media is yet to be out.

In accordance with Insiders, the earlier Indian films like Dangal, Sultan from Bollywood did very well at the chinese box-office. This is certainly asserted that they ended up being hits since they were less of VFX and more of feel good content, due to the fact Chinese films generally have more of VFX shots and effects on account of their technological arena. 2.0 is neverthless of VFX effects and there exists a concern in distributor’s mind,’Will this visual extra-vaganza survive in china market?’.

Additionally it is rumoured that, the social message pointed out via the movie is frightenning the cellular network providers and mobile phone manufacturers, it may impact their business firm. 2.0, directed by Shankar, is a story about the distressing consequences of radiation emanating from mobile phone towers on birds and animals.

However, the movie hasn’t released today and is likely pushed to August, because of ‘The Lion King’ release. The release date in August is yet to confirmed.

But, whenever the film releases, it would undoubtedly be successful for its own content and making.
